Why does my Experian report show a balance?

Your RentTrack tradeline on Experian will always show a balance that is equal to your rent amount with a date equal to the month of your most recent payment.  RentTrack is not reporting a balance to Experian and it is not negatively impacting your credit. This is different from Equifax and Transunion which both show a $0 balance each month. If you look at the “Status” field it will show “Open/never late”. This indicates that all rent payments have been made and your account is in good standing. Below is a sample rental tradeline from Experian that explains each field of your rental tradeline.
